Vm2Mage allows for migration of all VirtueMart data to Magento, but setting up the API involves knowledge. Additionally, you have to be familiar with Magento concepts like multisite, multicurrency, tax-rules, attribute-sets, root-catalogs, etcetera - before you can even start using Magento. With our full migration service, we can give you a quick start: Your VirtueMart data will be migrated to Magento, so you can focus on customizing the Magento shop itself.
What is covered
We will install and configure Vm2Mage so that it can be used properly for migration. This includes:
- Installation of Vm2Mage in both Joomla! as Magento
- Creating an API-user and API-privileges in Magento
- Checking whether the hosting environment is adequate for migration
- Setting up Magento scopes and Root Catalogs
After this primary setup, we will migrate the various data from VirtueMart to Magento. We will make sure data are migrated, but we still need your help to confirm whether all data is migrated as needed.
What is not covered
After the migration has been completed, the new Magento catalog is filled. But still, the entire shopping system will need to be configured (payment, checkout, shipping). Also the Magento theme probably needs modification. This type of customization is not included with this service.
Prices are calculated fairly but to the point. We don't believe in fixed prices. Our approach is to charge per hour, so that we don't have to cover up for project-changes, and so that you only pay for the hours actually works. Estimations can be made in advance however: Depending on a number of variables (hosting environment, number of product-types, number of Store-scopes, changes in the VirtueMart database-structure, etectera) we can give you a good estimation of how much time would be needed.
Instead of paying us by the hour, you could also purchase a Yireo Prepaid Package instead.
In effect, getting a support-package gives you a lower hourly rate. Also, it gives us both a commitment to the job at hands.
Hours can be spent on any task you need to get done.
Yireo focuses primarily on building extensions, and not on custom work. We are happy to help
you out where we can though. Because of our focus on extensions, the custom work we usually pick
up are small short-term projects only - assignments that require an expert vision and guru knowledge.
